    Our Microsoft Project introduction programme is aimed at users who are new to Microsoft Project and wish to be able to create a project plan and or use, edit or update a plan developed by someone else.


    Participants need no previous experience with Microsoft Project but should be comfortable using Microsoft Windows and should be able to start a Microsoft Office application, use the Help feature and open/close and save files. A basic knowledge of the principles of Project Management would be useful.

    • Navigate the Microsoft Project application and get help
    • Take the key steps when creating a new project plan
    • Build tasks and structure the tasks (promoting / demoting tasks)
    • Incorporate milestones into the plan
    • Build task sequencing – lag/lead, dependencies, time constraints, deadlines
    • Use Views, Tables and Filters
    • Formatting the plan and printing
    • Build a resource pool and assign resources to tasks
    • Examine progress and critical path of the project
